May I ask, what is the Pyramid Challenge?
It is a challenge to do 43 things in one week. I have been setting it up to start with 12 things the first day, then 10, then 8, then 6, then 4, then 2, then 1. I guess there is no reason you couldn't do it in reverse order, though.

In order to not overwhelm ourselves, I suggest that your chores be little ones, just those irritating, nagging little things that you keep meaning to do, but never get around to doing.
